Sorry I didn't answer this earlier; I got behind on my mail.

The reason I am using fastcgi is that it allows a persistent server process
and also passes Apache authentication information via REMOTE_USER.  I'm
using Apache to authenticate using mod_auth_kerb, and then passing the
username to applications that want a username but can't deal with kerberos.
